paging error

i want to do paging with ajax

i am using link_to_remote file and than include partial
for ex.
list.html.erb this is also in items folder
      <div id ='cont'><%= render :partial => 'list'%></div>
           in this all display record logic
in controler
           def list
    @items = Item.paginate(:page => params[:page], :per_page => 2)
  respond_to do |format|
     format.js {
       render :update do |page|
       page.replace_html 'mcont', :partial => 'list'

i can not redirect this way without link_to_remote this is possible
if any idea about it please give me
